Invite your local chapter of MS13 over for a BBQ every weekend until the problem is resolved.

The OP said they are Hispanic. Unless they move into a Hispanic area they are going to get the same response "maybe" one way or the other and anyone could call it racist or what ever. It is what it is but I have dealt with this. The most common looking people in the world moved in on the 2 acres next to me. Biggest idiot's I have ever met and do something each and every day that makes me scratch my head. My neighbor to the left of me has the keys to my house and I do to his. He hated seeing me move in because I was unknown to him at the time and we are both red necks. We are family like now.

I'm glad the OP is getting to move as it sounds like he was living next to an asshole.
You can sue for that I suppose but that would make you an asshole as well.

The OP's neighbor probably could do all sorts of shit to diminish his property value in short order without ever saying a word to a potential buyer. If the idiots next to me on the one side try to sell I'm gonna mow their grass and cook the potential buyers the best BBQ they ever had!
My luck, it would be some Yankee coming to fix the way I live!
This post is pretty telling that you are the idiot!

This thread cracks me up because the neighbor could be my dad.

I live in the same locale as the op. My parents do as well and they just had three houses go on the market after many years of having an all white, mostly elderly block. All were immediate neighbors to my parents. Now it's pretty clear here in a lot of neighborhoods that all races and ethnicities would like to live there and my dad understood that. He literally had himself so wound up he was going to open houses to find a place to go when it played out. All along he was doing a lot of the same crap, watching the perspective buyers and commenting on how they spoke, how they looked, etc. Luckliy he never went as far as to interfere.

In the end sure enough all three houses did sell to non-white, upper-middle aged, Hispanic folks. All are obviously proud of their homes and more importantly are beautiful human beings who are helping my dad with nearly everything around the house as he recovers from rotator cuff surgery. One neighbor is a chef by trade and has brought home many dinners for my dad and mom. My dad is humbled and grateful but will this experience teach an old dog new tricks? Not sure. Bigots seem to easily rationalize their beliefs.

Strangely he never has a thing to say about the one house in the block that is a true s-hole. I wonder why....?

100% deserved. And I'm sure enjoying watching it all play out. I don't say much one way or the other, never did, I just watch his 83 year old brain crank away while it deals with this.

At 83 you would think he should know better than to pre judge people based on skin color or if they hail from New Hampshire. Very good chance his house will by occupied by good Hispanic folks some day or even a good old fashion yankee.

I often tell him I will enjoy selling the home to the first "minority" that comes along after he kicks the bucket. And all its contents at a yard sale for pennies on the dollar (he's cheap too).

Sorry to derail. Back to the thread.....

If you have time, for the hell of it, go over to the neighbor (and I would record the conversation, maybe have your phone in your hand and have the wife on the other line recording the conversation) and strike up a conversation about the sale of the house and that you thought you had it sold and they decided to pull out. Just play dumb about it, wonder out loud with the neighbor why they could of killed the deal. Ask them if they happened to notice anything particular maybe about your house that would of turned them off, was there a big dog walking by, etc. Sometimes these idiots will show their true colors and spew out their hatred.

My wife kind of planted that seed. Sent her a message just saying we had accepted an offer and then they backed out. She didnít give any other details and just kind of eluded to the fact we werenít sure right now what happened with the deal. The neighbor didnít really have anything to say other than that sucks.

My uncle wanted to mess with them and went over and looked around the exterior with a notepad. He was hoping they would come out he wanted to tell them he was interested in the property he purchased older homes and rims group homes out of them lol. They were watching him like a hawk but never came out. Thought it was interesting that the neighbor didnít message my wife saying someone was looking like she has with literally everyone else.

I'd get in touch with a couple of my Hispanic friends, explain the story and have them throw a huge party pretending to move in.. I'd tell them to take it to the MAX with stereotypes.

They aren't trash, quite wealthy so they'd probably do it just for fun.

The one guy I have in mind would throw a $5,000 in your face party just to piss off the old lady.
